“I’m not a Cat” – Funny, but what if you were facing a serious charge?

I'm not a cat - Funny

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

In today’s Zoom and WebEx courts, it is imperative that we are not Cats or Unicorns when facing serious charges. Your legal defense is quite possibly the most critical service you have ever needed in your life. Criminal defense attorneys must understand digital discovery, have a strong bench of experts, and understand how to use today’s video conferencing solutions to provide the best possible defense for client’s serious charges.

The serious charges Cafferty & Scheidegger typically defend clients from have immense amounts of digital discovery (evidence). Examples include: bodycam footage, video of an incident, dashcam video, and witness interviews. Does the evidence tell a different story? Was the arrest legal? It is critical in today’s day and age that you hire a firm with a deep technical understanding and a roster of true experts.

*But* It’s 2021… and even the most serious firm around found this funny!

We all need to laugh, and this is funny! The Attorney…. or Cat, Rod Ponton and others involved have been a good sports about this.

The big-eyed fluffy “cat” in the bottom right corner was county attorney Rod Ponton, inadvertently using a filter.

“Mr Ponton, I believe you have filter turned on in the video settings” – Texas 394th District Court Judge.

(prrrrr-esumably) Attorney Rod Ponton tells the court his assistant was trying to fix the settings.

“I’m here live, I’m not a cat,”

Attorney Rod Ponton

“I can see that,” -Texas 394th District Court Judge.
